I have a "Macromedia Flash Video" .swf file which content begins with "FLV".
The 'meld' app freezes (same as Openshot which uses MLT) when I try to open the file if the following conditions are met:
- I have swfdec (and had it during compilaton of MLT),
- --enable-swfdec was used.
If MLT is compiled without "swfdec" option, it IS able to open that file (thanks to another option, ffmpeg).
Expected behaviour: melt and apps using MLT shouldn't freeze when such a file is opened (in that state melt even ignores SIGINT).
Possible fix: maybe it should detect and ignore such files and try ffmpeg or something, but not swfdec, or handle swfdec failure to decode the file.
